U.S. Navy Solicits Suggestions For Improving Pump Specification

Recognizing that the formal process for review of specifications provides for only a short review period, the Naval Sea Systems Command is soliciting technical suggestions for improving specifications which it plans to revise in the next several months. This specification is: MIL-P-19131, Pumps, Rotary, Power-Driven, Miscellaneous.

This specification covers positive displacement, power driven, miscellaneous, rotary pumps, and requires that manufacturers qualify their products for inclusion in a qualified products list (QPL). When a purchase is contemplated, only those manufacturers whose equipment has previously been qualified will be solicited.

Beneficial comments (additions and/or deletions with suggested new wording) with associated justification and explanation as to how the changes are in the Government's interest are solicited, as well as pertinent data which may be of use in improving these documents.

Single copies of the specification may be obtained from the Commanding Officer, U.S. Naval Publication and Forms Center, 5801 Tabor Avenue, Philadelphia, Pa., 19120.

Comments should be sent to Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command, SEA 56Y21, Department of the Navy, Washington, DC 20362, Attn: T.F. Krokus.

(202) 692-6826.
